Fixing The Tar Directory Checksum Error In Solaris

This error is possible indicator that the checksum of the directory and the respective file from the tape doesn’t match up to the checksum value in the header block. This error message could indicate corrupt data on tape or else wrong blocking factor. To solve this issue make sure that the blocking factor specified by you matches the blocking factor originally specified in the command line. If you have any doubt about block size on the tape, then let the tar decide it automatically. If it is not solved by this, then the tape data is corrupted.
